    Very interesting read. Great article. Need more similar ones . I think this is where we can really differentiate ourselves from places like cricinfo. They don't do this often, and we have enough members well versed enough to really put out some quality articles. The one on Sehwag and Bradman by SJS was also like this.

    Different and interesting. And much more lasting than discussing only a pressing issue - historical context makes the articles much more timeless.

    The England selectors probably could learn something from that match, then again most of that sorry bunch of plebs could learn something from an episode of Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men.

    I have read a lot about this, and must give full credit to Martin, this is the equal of any I have ever read
    You know it makes sense.
